シュタインズゲート (STEINS;GATE) (2011)TV/Film

Genre: present sci-fi drama

Log line: A weird young man, who jokingly calls himself a “mad scientist”, involves his friends and accidentally creates a time machine but he realizes that he needs to go back when the situation becomes worse as he continues time traveling.

Although the background visuals are not so beautiful, this is a well-constructed time-travel/love story. The man and his friends find that the machine they are working on has the ability to send e-mail to the past. As they think that it can be a time machine and as they go on experimenting about the function, the reality changes every time and the situation becomes really serious and bad. Each character is well portrayed and shows the weird side of Japanese. Especially the main character is weird guy at the beginning, but actually that makes his character arc clear.
